Many posts here inviting encouragement to buy a Gold Wing. Saw my first two in 1975 on Interstate 70. Man and woman, each with bare wing with only a bag tied on the back, on the way back from Chicago to LA, and loving them. Never heard a bad word about them. Never rode one. Have had 3 Silver Wings in the last few years, commute with them sometimes, no long distance work. Not dissatisfied, but curious and intrigued with the Gold Wing, the Real Deal. With that as a benchmark, will I find the Gold Wing a cumbersome monstrosity to handle at low speed and parking? I'm big enough, but still the Gold Wing seems awfully broad to straddle.
